Take part in a workcamp between city and nature, by participating in the construction of a pergola and wooden furniture in the city of Saint-Jean-de-Braye, east of the Orleans Metropolis. Located in the heart of France and at the gates of the castles of the Loire, World Heritage of Unesco, this workcamp will take place near the bike path "la Loire a velo" frequented by cyclists from all over the world, who descend from the mountains of the Massif Central to the Ocean. For this fourth consecutive project, you will build a pergola with benches and wooden chairs that will be installed in a green space located in front of the Jacques Monod high school. Carried out at the request of the inhabitants, your work will allow the creation of a relaxing space and a garden in the heart of the city, giving meaning to an unexploited place, which the high school students and walkers will appropriate and in which they will be able to recharge their batteries. You will have the opportunity to meet and exchange with volunteers from other workcamps organized in the Orleans Metropolis, and to discover the cultural life of the Loire Valley.

Accommodatie en maaltijden

You will be accommodated in large marquee tents with sleeping spaces for two people in a closed area near downtown. Cots and blankets will be provided for sleeping. Remember to bring your own sleeping bag. Sanitary facilities will be available near the lodging area with separate showers and men/women's toilets. You will be able to use the kitchen equipped with a common room and the refectory for meals. With the budget allocated to the animation team, you will participate in the shopping and the preparation of meals, giving preference to healthy and local products. You can bring your own recipes to share with the group. A washing machine or a Laundromat nearby will be available during the stay (preferably bring 2 weeks of laundry). There is a possibility of accessing the Wi-Fi by going to the town hall or by sharing the connection with the French volunteers and the animation team.

Locatie en vrije tijd

One hour from Paris, the city of Saint-Jean de Braye is situated along the Loire, a royal and wild river, classified as an "exceptional cultural landscape" by Unesco. In its surroundings, the Loire River flanked by bike circuits joins Orleans, the regional capital and neighbouring city. Between the Loire and the forest, the city owes its reputation to its industrial past and its remarkable biodiversity. You will have the opportunity to discover the numerous parks as well as the local historical heritage, and to participate in summer festivities and activities.


With its three years of experience, the city of Saint-Jean-de-Braye welcomes you for a fourth year of work. The local community, the inhabitants and the elected officials will welcome you warmly and will guide you through their territory: The Parc des Longues Allees and its summer guinguette which programs concerts, the walks on the banks of the Loire, the tyrolienne… Meetings with the young people of the sociocultural association of the city will be organized, a treasure hunt and an intercultural meal will be eventually organized!


The workcamp will take place in urban and natural areas. For practical and ecological reasons, travel will be mainly on foot, by bicycle and by public transport. It is therefore essential to know how to ride a bicycle. Remember to bring gloves, clothes and shoes adapted to outdoor work. Don't forget to bring a sleeping bag, summer and rain clothes, a bathing suit and toiletries. You should also bring your own sanitary protection equipment: masks and hydroalcoholic gel. You can bring board games, a musical instrument or any other object from your country that you wish to share with the group. Foreigners belonging to the European Union must bring with them a personal EHIC (European Health Insurance Card), and everybody must, in any case, bring their insurance certificate. If health issues arise on the project, volunteers will have to pay for it, and will then be reimbursed once back in their home country.
